3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated on 7-31-2015 (Bottle) This beer’s appearance is a small tan head that mostly diminished, dark brown body, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is nutty, chocolate and caramel malt. The flavor mimics the aroma. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light-medium bodied. A quaffable easy drinking beer with little character. An easily forgettable beer.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy fine to medium sized light brown colored bubbles that were and left behind a no visible carbonation semi-opaque brown colored body. The mild aroma was brown malt. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a medium malty aftertaste. The mild flavor contained notes of roasted malt burnt malt and brown malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

Nice nutty flavor, with a good bitter balance and the slightest smokey undertone. Overall a very good Brown.

Bottle. Very average brown ale. Nothing at all special - pretty disappointing beer all told.

Sample from a bottle. Up front, caramel malt; good nuttiness. Touch of chocolate, mild earth. Prefer it to the neopolitan I just tried. Moderate to bigger sweet taste, mild bitter. Kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Clear red / brown color. Thin off-white head. Bits and ropes of lace. Decent brown ale, but a bit sweet in the end.

Rating #1213 31.07.2014 Bottle from Saugatuck. Dark brown pour with a weak bubbly tan foam that disappears quickly. Aroma is strong roast malts, coffee, chicory, campfire (smoke). Taste is bold earthy malts, with a light smokiness. Bitterness is fairly assertive. This is delicious.

(bottle - 12 oz) Dark brown with a thin tan head. Smoky aroma with hints of chocolate and nuts. Flavor is quite smoky but not overbearing. Light chocolate and bread malts with a slightly nutty finish. [9/10/15]

Tap at mellow mushroom new Albany. Smooth and great color with but of dark white head. Nose is malty and sweet. Smooth up front but bit of off-sweet notes makes you wonder what's going on there in the middle. Ok but not as good as bells brown or other Browns out there.

Excellent transition of flavor. Beautiful on the palate, as expected from this brewery. Delivers exactly as depicted on the label. This is overall a great tasting beer.
